On Saturday 29th June, Sir Adrian and Lady Johns will once again be hosting the highly popular Convent Open Day.
The garden, which has undergone significant re-planting over the past two years, will be the setting for cream teas, gardening and plant stalls, children’s activities and the ever popular jazz quintet from the Royal Gibraltar Regiment Band. The formal rooms of the Convent, including the newly-refurbished Ballroom and Banqueting Hall with its extensive display of heraldry will also be open to the public to visit. Throughout the day there will also be displays by the Gibraltar Defence Police Dog Section, the Raptor Society and the Gibraltar Re-enactment Association.
The Minister for the Environment, Dr John Cortes, is delighted to announce the first publication on litter, and waste information, to go to every household on the Rock. He said, “This has been a collaborative effort by the ESG and Litter Committee members and funded by Government. We have been pleased to support this project because we agree that knowledge can affect change".
The leaflet will be delivered to AquaGib's 17,000 customers with June's bill: Mr Cano, Managing Director at AquaGib stressed: "Here at AquaGib, we are committed to supporting the Government in their efforts at greening up Gibraltar and are pleased to make this leaflet with practical, environmental information available to our customers." Additionally, AquaGib will also be sending an electronic copy of the leaflet to several thousand clients using their online service.
